    Talk about gas-lighting, I would post the actual words of those in charge calling it a hoax, but what's the point. 

    They only realize they are in a cult when the Kool-Aid is past the lips.

    In Sweden?  Yeah, pretty much.  And they didn't even lock down.

    It seems that the majority of average deaths per million is settling in around 550. There are flyers above and below that but that is the number.  Seems locking down or not didnt really matter.


    Hospitalizations
    Covid : ~500/100,000  (oddly correlates with death rate)
    Flu 2017-2018 season: ~1500/100,000 (3 times that of Covid)

    Cost of flu is much higher than COVID. We dont lock down for the Flu.

    Your data could be a bit out of date?  US has hit 597 deaths per million, at least according to my sources.  We have passed Sweden.

    I used a slightly older date to get more countries. But you are correct.  Still in the same range.  Over time I think the number will come down as death certificates come under more scrutiny.

    Possible.  I think more than anything the mortality rate is going to plummet.  I think far more people have or have had this virus than we think.

    I agree that more have had it than thought... likely triple or more.  Antibody testing is way more important than regular testing. It would help to build confidence in the traumatized public.

    Some studies have indicated we are catching 1 in every 10 cases, due to most people have little to no symptoms, thus they are not bothering with testing.  If that is true the mortality rate can be divided by 10, making it very low.

    i hope they keep the masks even after this is all over.   some people are butt ugly, and some people have horrible breath.   This is two birds one stone.

    Yup, I posted that information a month or more ago. Back when Tarp was dismissing everything that said this wasnt that big of a deal.

    10x more infections would be game changing.  10x lower mortality rate and 10x closer to herd immunity.  60-80 million already infected would be a great sign.

    Numbers going down. God forbid, if a certain someone wins in November and we would all have to wear masks in public next year regardless of the situation.

    Edit;
      I attempted putting this on the hurricane thread, but it seems about right here too.

    Numbers are going down due to data manipulation. Unless you are staying your house 24-7 you are part of the problem.
    It is that simple.

    Welcome back Cyclist. You need to research what it would be like to shut down again and the effects of children going forward. Sweden is doing better than the countries around them that are having a resurgence that did exactly what you wanted them to do.

    So you are one of the science deniers. You probably think man made global warming is real too.... and biodiesel is a legit fuel source.
